Amazing cliffs, crystal clear sea, lemon perfume. A tour of the Amalfi Coast is not simple tourism but a real sensational journey to discover overwhelming places and flavors.
It surprises and excites every visitor and for this reason I propose to anyone who is passing by, one day trip, through extraordinary places, to experience the ecstasy that mix eyesight and smells to delight your palate.
Starting in the morning, returning in the evening
If you are visiting Salerno and you only have one day available, I suggest you to experience this unique and unrepeatable experience. Through breathtaking landscapes and traditional foods, you will discover one of the most scenic scenery in the world, where cuisine and territory are indissolubly linked.
There is only to choose how to explore these 42 kilometers rich in views to immortalize and artistic treasures to discover (starting from the sea) if you enjoy the beautiful views of the beaches, drifting fjords such as Furore, lemon trees cultivated on the terraces, then stop in one of the restaurants built in rock or starting from the land, facing very narrow curves, though they allow you to see the villages and perhaps make a in the most perched city like Ravello, to visit its famous villas with a marvelous view on the sea.
Starting from Salerno, the ideal is the state road 163, bumpy but incredibly scenic road. After Vietri and its beautiful majolica, we meet our first stop.
A small and picturesque seaside village where you can enjoy 4 delicious delicacies:
Going further, we are in the small town of Minori where it is worth stopping in pastry shop and let yourself be tempted by the two typical cakes:
Alternatively we can wait to arrive in the mythological Amalfi, historic Maritime Republic, where we ca taste gelato or the traditional Pasticciotto, pastry with cream and candied blackberry.
For dinner, a nice choice is to go to Pogerola, close to Amalfi, to enjoy a rare delicacy:
In Tramonti, between sea and mountains, where animals graze almost free, you absolutely must buy:
Returning to the sea, we arrive to Conca dei Marini, house of the sfogliatella riccia: the Sisters of convent Santa Rosa invented it about 400 years ago
In Positano, ending our tour, we have to enjoy the caprese, not tomato and mozzarella, but the cake, a delicious delicacy of almonds and dark chocolate made without flour or yeast, light and tasty at the right point.
To go back, follow the arrows heading towards Naples, then take the A3 motorway in Castellamare.
What are you waiting for? It is time to wake up the senses and live a day in the Amalfi Coast, I guarantee you that your life will not be the same!
